Today we welcome author HelenKay Dimon. She writes Romantic Suspense stories filled with hunky heroes and awesome heroines. She’s here to tell us a bit about her latest book, Copy That, and she’s also offering a copy to one lucky commenter. So stick around!
Thank you for letting me be here today and talk about my newest release, COPY THAT.
This book starts off with a bang – literally. The poor heroine, Meredith Samms, comes downstairs to visit her usually out-of-town neighbor, Garrett Hill, and is attacked. She gets out of the house with the help of the man she thinks is Garrett only to find out the house is about to blow up and her rescuer is not Garrett. He's Garrett's twin, Jeremy. How's that for a hard start to the day?
Unfortunately for Meredith, things don’t get better from there. She has to deal with being chased, shot at (repeatedly), confusion over the Jeremy/Garrett issue, ferretting out the mistaken identity and who-does-the-bad-guy-really-want questions…and then there's the part where she falls for Jeremy.
Basically, the goal of the book is nonstop action. I love that in movies and love writing it in romantic suspense. You know the feeling, right? It's when you’re reading and your heart races a bit and you’re flipping the pages and wincing when the hero and heroines run into trouble. To me, that's the best kind of romantic suspense. Sure, the poor hero and heroine need some time to get to know each other and, well, get to know each other, but to do that in the shadow of tension and danger, and with the bullets flying, is a pure fun.
Let me clarify: it's great in books. In real life I'll take calm and safe and danger-free romance. If a bad guy comes at me, I'm hiding in the closet. If something explodes, I'm calling the fire department. And if someone chases me? Well, you'll probably hear me screaming from wherever you are.

Connect with HelenKay:
Returning from his latest Border Patrol assignment, Jeremy Hill seeks sanctuary in his twin brother's home. The last thing he expects to find is an armed man already inside, or Meredith Samms, a gorgeous tenant caught in the cross fire. Then he discovers that the gunman's attack is meant for his twin brother, who is nowhere in sight, and Jeremy must take matters into his own hands. Searching for his brother while trying to protect this girl next door, Jeremy finds himself caught up in the danger he'd become all too familiar with. In his world, everyone's a target and anyone can be a suspect, so Jeremy has no room for emotions. But what Meredith stirs within him may complicate this unexpected mission to the point of no return….
